At the young age of 33, Dr. Carson was named the director of pediatric neurosurgery at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University Hospital, and this compassionate, God-fearing physician has devoted his life to giving dying children a second chance at life.
In 1987, Dr. Carson gained international recognition for his role in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head, a dangerous and complex procedure that took five months of planning and 22 hours of actual surgery.
Gifted Hands is a fascinating, remarkable story that takes listeners inside the operating rooms where Dr. Carson made medical history, as well as into the private mind of a true Christian role model who beat the odds to achieve greatness.

"One of Dr. Carson's greatest achievements is his incredible skill in the operating room. But of equal value is the time he spends talking to kids, teaching them." (Jesse Jackson)
"Benjamin Carson is already a legend." (Dr. Timothy Johnson, ABC News)
This is a must read. Such a success story of this gifted man's life. A story to share with children of all ages, especially those which fail and those that dream big. All walks of life could be touched by this story.
"Great book by an inspiring man!"
This was the first book of the ben carson series that I came across. I've since read all his books but one!
A brilliant and inspiring story! A must listen to people of all ages. This book is a perfect pick-me-up for anyone in need of a boost!
I rated it 4 stars rather than 5 because the unabridged book has a few extra details the the audio version misses
